The Effect of Increased UV-B Radiation on the Terrestrial Ecosystem
Keywords:UV-B radiation, terrestrial ecosystem, ozone layer depletion, Environment, Physiological structure
AbstractAgainst rapidly developing industry and increasing population, natural resources on earth are getting destroyed. One of the most important adverse effects on the environment is perhaps the depletion of ozone layer which protects the earth from harmful effects of UV radiation, especially UV-B. The effect of UV-B radiation can vary according to species. At high rates of UV-B radiation, many disorders in DNA, photosynthesis, morphological and physiological structure, and biomass accumulation in plants are observed. In this review, the effects of high UV-B radiation on terrestrial ecosystem are discussed.
